Videos from our first family vacation!

We took our first vacation to Myrtle Beach and had a fabulous time!  We came home with tons of pictures & videos!  One of the highlights of our trip was our visit to Ripley's Aquarium!  Here are two videos of our underwater explorer :)

 Pictures to come!

9 months: 17lbs 15oz - 26 3/4" long
12 months:  20lbs 12oz - 28" long

Personality: Abby is such a ham!  She has turned into quite the priss pot too!  She loves being silly and smiling and laughing!
Eating/Sleeping Habits:   She still loves to eat!  There still isn't much she won't eat.  She is definitely a veggie lover (much more so than Mommy or Daddy!).  She has now started to make the switch to whole milk from formula!  She basically eats 3 solid meals plus a snack and drinks 4 6oz bottles.
Comforted By: Music, Rocking, Singing, Going for Walks

Developmental Milestones:  She is now walking like a champ and is about to tackle running!  She has taken quite an interest in the stairs so we are thankful to be moving soon!  She has 6 teeth and is working on her first molar (ouch!).  She babbles a lot and really tries to communicate (especially through pointing).  Its amazing how much she has developed in the last couple months!

Better late than never right?

Not sure what to think!

We are homeowners!

It finally happened!  We closed today at 3pm on our first home!  Here is a "tour" of our humble abode :)

The outside!  Definitely need some curb appeal.

Not the best lighting but this is the den.

Dining Room

The lovely kitchen (don't you just love the veneer backsplash?)

The new addition which will be the playroom

Another view of the playroom

This will be Abby's room (I think that is nail polish on the wall)

The office/guest room and I know this may surprise you but we are not keeping the electric turquoise color

We will have to add pics of the master bedroom, bathroom, and back yard.  

This is our lovely work in progress!  We hope to be moved in by the end of June!
